Confidential Hard Drive Shredding Services
The Data Protection Act 1998 has set a legal requirement for companies to provide sufficient guarantees of security measures for the disposal of confidential data such as personal information. Companies have an obligation to protect the security of their employees and clients. If such data is mislaid during the disposal process both the company wishing to dispose of it and the company employed to do so are jointly liable.
As a founder member of NAID UK (Nationwide Association for Information Destruction), Lombard Recycling offers confidential shredding services and guarantees that the destruction process is secure and closely monitored. Under the rulings of the Data Protection Act, all material should be kept for no longer than 72 hours prior to destruction - at Lombard Recycling, we limit this time to 24 hours.
We do NOT act as agents and for peace of mind, customers are welcome to see the disposal of confidential items at our premises. All contractual clients will receive a Certificate of Destruction.
High Security - Hard Drive Shredding
We also offer a range of secure shredding services to suit all needs, including a hard drive shredding service. For large volumes of hard drives we have the option of bringing a shredder to your site and shredding whilst you watch. The residual shredded material is then recycled into its various precious metals.
Other confidential items that we will collect, securely transport and dispose of include the following:
